Utopia Bay 

U-to-pi-a:  A place of ideal perfection 

Or as a  friend of mine defined the "Up at the Lake" experience " It is simplicity.  It is quiet. It is peace.  It is the focus on each other.  It is the slow pace. It is the balance of our busy lives at home."

Drive a short distance, but step back in time 70 years to the serenity of a lake shore community located in the land of sky blue water lakes.  Utopia Bay is an exclusive development designed from the setting of a 1940's resort, and located on the shores of Elbow Lake.  When you own at Utopia Bay you find yourself in a neighborhood where your ownership has many benefits. We offer both lake view sites with captivating vistas, and lake access sites for sale. Our goal is to preserve the value, the structural and architectural quality, and the truly timeless ecological environment. This is your opportunity to own what is one of Minnesota’s most unique topographically diverse properties found all within the confines of 56 acres. What makes this property so unique? Utopia Bay is located in the middle of the 160,000 acre White Earth State Forest, just 20 miles west of Itasca State Park. We have over 1300 feet of lakeshore on Elbow Lake in a peaceful pristine bay created by a 27 acre island. Elbow Lake is a 1000 acre lake with a water clarity rating of 10 feet, and depths on average from 30 feet to 40 feet dropping to 78 feet. Elbow Lake is over 7 miles long and has a channel linking it to Lake Little Bemidji providing exceptional fishing and recreational opportunities. Solid Bottom Creek is a DNR designated trout stream and flows through Utopia Bay for over a half mile in a sixty foot deep gorge with a mountain like setting of boulders and towering pines.  Solid Bottom Creek also has the distinction of being the most westerly trout steam until you reach Montana (click on "Video Hike The Creek" for a tour).  The hiking trails wind through 56 acres from the creek bed to 90’ above the lake. The lake shore offers hammocks to lounge in the shade, a great sandy swim beach with lounge furniture, a boat launch, and docking area, along with over 800 feet of low wetlands. For our owners this translates into a truly unique setting offering a sanctuary for birds, wildlife, and foliage - it's like owning your own state park
